Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

It doesn't have to be obvious CGI. CGI costumes can work just fine. They're using CG for a lot of capes now and Iron Man's suits are all full CGI except for a few small elements used as reference for the animators. CGI snobbery is kind of funny because people bemoan all bad special effects as CGI ev...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

You think the best way to reintroduce the character to a skeptical public after the Reynolds debacle is to adapt a story where he gets his arms chopped off or he fucks up and everyone dies? I have a better idea. Drop Hal Jordan and use Jon Stewart as a combined version of the various GL's. Give him ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

I disagree with your premise. Continuity is the death of good storytelling. Comics turned to shit when they stopped giving out No Prizes and listened to rules lawyering RPG bullshit about travel times between issues. That said... They can probably do something similar to what I suggested when they b...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

https://youtu.be/pT75YHqlD9k Here's a really good video essay on the evolution of the Superhero genre. It made me realize what's wrong with the DCCU: Introducing Superman first was a terrible mistake. What they should have done was build it off if TDKR. Continue with Gordon Levitt as Batman and add ...

Re: [Film] Watchmen

Watchmen is ubfilmable. It's as much a story about the medium of the comic book as the tropes of superhero comics and a major chunk of its significance can't be captured in another form. So there's two ways to adapt it: go avant-garde to capture its spirit or have a director storyboard into a movie ...

Re: What would you change about cinema/film history?

Oddly if that hadn't happened there'd be no Marvel movies st all and possibly no Marvel. The company was panic selling rights when they were on the edge of bankruptcy. Oddly enough, the huge success of comic book movies and the "-cu" thing started with the properties that were so obscure o...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

That was space propane for the space barbecue. You'd think they'd leave that behind, and take only the essentials for the initial survey mission, which must be conducted by hand and on foot for some reason. I guess all the mapping gadgets and science stuff they had in Prometheus is too expensive for...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

I think it amounts to a huge TMI on the part of the director revealing their personal sexual kinks and shoving them in the audience's faces. It's akin to your uncle loudly professing in public that he likes licking women's assholes after covering them with honey. It's awkward. Don't thrust your kin...

Keep beating that dead horse why don't ya? God forbid we have that Super powered man act like a human being would in his situation! That's boring. He's not a human being. He just isn't , and that raises really interesting questions. How does the world react to a truly good man? What's missing from ...

Foot fetishism makes me Incredibly, irrationally angry and I don't know why, so when Avengers opened up with Gwyneth Paltrow's feet I was temporarily infuriated until Robert Downey, Jr's smooth delivery eased my soul and lifted my spirits. I think that's why I hate Tarantino. That and his chin. I'm ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Lots of jokes, lots of romanticism, none of the dark tone that was DC was trying Good, maybe we can get a Superman who smiles and doesn't look put out when saving people and a science hero Batman who isn't a brooding psycopathic murderer. What The DCCU needs is a plan, a coherent direction, and a h...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

The problem isn't that the dumb mistakes are there it's that the audience isn't engaged enough with the characters to gloss over them. I'll take the running in a straight line thing as my example. People call Charlize Theron's character stupid for running in a straight line because hey have no emoti...

I feel crass for saying this, but: I'm less excited for this now than ever. Fuck Joss Whedon and his foot fetishes and bland, boring, soap opera directing style. I can't think of anyone who would clash with Snyder more and I'm baffled as to why they chose him to complete this film other than attachi...
